Synchronicity and Emergence by Joseph Cambray
- "Scientific reconsideration of C. G. Jung's difficult, fascinating, and peculiar idea of synchronicity, which he believed to represent an acausal connecting principle, has become possible with the advent of recent developments in understanding the self-organizing features of complex adaptive systems (CAS). In particular, the question of acausality in "meaningful" coincidences, especially those observed in the clinical setting, can be reassessed in terms of the concept of emergence, which explores holistic phenomena supervening from interactions among component agents."

I shall then examine the complexity and profound implications of this notion, to show how findings in modern scientific disciplines support and amplify this pioneering work, which was implicitly pointing to a radically revised metaphysical position."
